The developer behind 2012's Dust: An Elysian Tail has revealed that its next project to coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
Never Stop Sneakin’, as you can see from the trailer above, it a parody of Konami's seminal Metal Gear Solid, lampooning elements from the 1998 PlayStation outing - even the visuals look like they're straight out of a 32-bit game.
Developer Humble Hearts has peppered the plot with aspects that Kojima himself would be proud of; time-travel, preposterously-named vampire-like enemies and - wait for it - a vice-president who is a helicopter. Even the music which plays over the trailer apes the James Bond-style theme which opened Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Humble Hearts’ Dean Dodrill had this to say:
I had several goals I wanted to accomplish with my sophomore effort as a game developer. I wanted to try something in a completely different aesthetic, and go fully-polygonal in the process. I wanted to create something procedural and infinitely re-playable, and design engaging combat with the simplest controls possible. I think I've accomplished these things, and it's been a thrill to create something completely different from [Dust: An Elysian Tail].
It looks amazing - and it's a Switch exclusive. What do you make of this announcement?
